Customized risk solutions with world-wide market knowledge

    alt txt



    Munich Re, with its deep understanding of risks, is in a strong position to partner with today’s downstream energy companies in transitioning to tomorrow’s energy economy. With special risk-transfer solutions for project- or performance-related risks and natural catastrophe covers, insurers can play a key role as enablers and credit risk enhancers. In addition, the engineering and natural catastrophe knowledge and experience gathered in decades of risk assessment for the energy industry make insurers suitable advisors and consultants for innovative energy projects.

    We have been underwriting the downstream energy market for over 35 years and are recognized as a market leader in this class of business in both the London and international energy insurance markets. We deliver strong technical underwriting for this demanding sector throughout the underwriting cycle. We also have in-house risk management resources that can be utilized for site surveys, asset reviews and client technical liaison. As a result of our diverse and unique skill set, our client base encompasses a broad range of companies across the globe.
